‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp has lost his libel case over an article that appeared in ‘The Sun’ newspaper in the UK. The article made claims that Depp was violent to former wife Amber Heard during their turbulent two-year marriage, with Depp having sued News Group Publishers, which owns ‘The Sun’, along with the journalist who wrote the article. Depp’s loss in the case followed three weeks of testimony that included claims of domestic violence and substance abuse, with Judge Andrew Nicol stating the article had been shown to be "substantially true".
